Unseasonably warm weather continues to flow into the region. Temperatures tonight will drop back into the upper 30s to lower 40s, but that is still well above average for the date. We'll have a good deal of clouds with some drizzle and a shower in spots. Once again, there will be some pockets of dense fog developing. Thursday will be breezy and warm despite a good deal of clouds and showers. The showers will become more numerous during the afternoon. A cold front will slip across the area and then stall Thursday night. As a disturbance moves along the front we'll have periods of rain Friday, some of which will be heavy. It will also start to turn colder with morning highs in the 40s but afternoon temperatures dropping through the 30s. The rain will mix with ice or snow in places later in the day and will change to a period of snow before ending later Friday night. A bubble of high pressure will give us a return of some sunshine Saturday but it will be a chilly day with highs in the 30s. This cold air will play a big factor in our weather as another storm approaches on Sunday. This storm will likely spread snow into the area, but as warm air moves in aloft, the snow will then mix with sleet and freezing rain. The mix will last into Sunday night before perhaps going to rain showers for a while on Monday before colder air changes precipitation back to snow showers later Monday. Behind this system, much colder air will move in for the middle of next week with snow showers.
